We have another self-taught artist for you this week. Michal Klimczak hails from Poland and is a digital artist specialising in photo manipulation. Michal has noted that he draws inspiration from artists Allan Lee, HR Giger, and Michael Karcz.
Below is a small sampling of Michal’s work. Each image links back to the site of origin. Enjoy!
I’ve been eyeing Michal’s art for a while now. I am struck by the immense silence radiating from these images. Michal gives us a peek into a post-apocalyptic future devoid of sound and life. Solitude seems to play an important emotional role here. The ambience overall is a haunting one, filled with a nihilistic hopelessness. And yet, at the same time, I also feel excited at the prospects of an unknown future and seemingly alien Earth. I suppose that is the point, after all. Hope might be a pale, sickly thing in Michal’s world but it still exists, and you’ll find it beyond the clouds of radioactive smog shrouding the distant horizons.
